Sadly Misunderstood
South Park is one of the most misunderstood, and also the most intelligent shows on television.

South Park is a satirical look on most anything from Western society - politics, the media, today's youth, celebrities, violence in our society, and much much more. However, instead of presenting these issues as they are, they alternately project them through the exploits of four young boys in South Park, Colorado.

Unfortunately, many people take the show solely at face value, refusing to see the intelligence in it - South Park is admittedly filled with racist and sexist jokes, along with other offensive material. The problem lies within the fact that most people don't seem to understand the concept of satire and self parody.

I admit that I, myself, was one of these people - for years I refused to watch that "garbage," until finally a friend forced me to actually watch a whole episode, and I realized that the show was actually making a point.

So, if you haven't done so, go - watch an episode. You'll feel smarter when you're done.

Goofs

In early seasons, whenever the children enter the cafeteria and Chef greets them with the "Hello there children!" line, notice his name on his apron is spelled in lowercase 'chef', but the next scene when he is speaking with the children, and the focus is on him behind the servery, notice his name is spelled in uppercase 'CHEF'.


Crazy Credits

The tune used for the Braniff logo at the end of the credits is the opening song from Trey Parker and Matt Stone's first film, "Alfred Packer: The Musical" (aka Cannibal: The Musical). Titled "Shpadoinkle Day". "The Sky is blue, and all the leaves are green. The Suns as warm as a baked potato. I think I know exactly what I mean, when I say its a Shpadoinkle day!"


Alternate Versions

In the later showings of the episode where the boys enter Afganistan, cartoonish sound effects were added when cartman pulled out signs that read "s**t head" and "c**k sucker" and when the magnifying glasses are magnified a few times to see Osama Bin Laden's genitals, also the music in the end credits changed to "The Star Spangled Banner" while the first showing played the theme song.
